Where do the memories go when we forget them? And how does one get around a world that insists on forgetting? What do old people look like? But what does a child care about all this! Unless someone forgets his birthday…

Kostis lives in a world that seems to be forgotten: dad travels and forgets to return, grandfather forgets what he ate at noon, mom cares for everyone and everything, but she would love to be forgotten on an exotic island. Kostis is afraid that one day they will forget him too. Unless that thought seems to come true: it looks like he has forgotten his birthday! Then he will share his cake with a new fantastic friend, Socrates. Socrates is an elephant. And as we know elephants never forget. They even know where all the lost memories are. Boy and elephant will travel to the sea of ​​memory, discover the strange island of shoes and soles that do not melt. A new adventure begins for Kostis and his family. After all, it’s not a small elephant in the room!

A chamber theater with surreal shades and live music. A tender, contemporary work that touches on the issue of memory loss with humor and empathy and, presenting the relationships of three generations within the family, shows how creative thinking and play can – in a very fun way – bridge the gap between us!
